It is difficult to make a comparison on the 2007/2008 season with these two superstars due to the injury of Crosby, but here are some key points.
Ovechkin averaged .79 goals per game and 1.37 points pergame to Crosby's .45 goals per game and 1.36 points per game. These statistics are more accurate than total numbers due to Crosby missing several games. Ovechkin was the MVP of the league with his 65 goals and 112 points. Ovechkin became the first left winger in the NHL to reach 65 goals.
Crosby still managed to come up with some all star type numbers (24 goals and 72 points) in just 53 games played. Due to Crosby's adequate supporting cast his Penguins still stormed into the playoffs as the no. 2 seed in the East. Sid led his team to the Stanley Cup Finals where they gave overmatched Detroit a run for their money, while Ovechkin and his Caps made a first round exit.
Year 1-- Ovechkin definetly wins this one with the Calder to confirm it.
Year 2-- Breakout year for Crosby leagues top scorer and MVP
Year 3-- ?????
